The Real Cure For Anxiety

We are an anxious society. Our fast paced lives, our endless responsibilities, our stack of bills needing to be paid, our fears, the unknown, life experiences, and endless other things hold us in a state of worry and anxiety. More and more anxiety and depression medicines are being prescribed every single day. I don’t want to simply look down on us for this. Instead, I want to look at our state through God’s perspective. In light of God’s Word, what are we to do with…

Joy Changes Everything

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.” (Matthew 13:44) In our last writing, we discussed an extremely important truth found in Matthew 13:44: God creates joy. In today’s writing, I want to look at the fruit of that joy. If God gives us joy, what does that actually do in and through us? Looking at what it…

God Creates Joy

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.” (Matthew 13:44) Matthew 13:44 is the verse that drives everything we do as a ministry. It is a powerful verse that shows exactly what happens to a seeking heart when it has finally found what it has been looking for. All hearts are looking to be satisfied. That’s why we…

What Does The Empty Tomb Mean For Us?

What is Easter? What does the empty tomb mean? What does Jesus being raised to life do for us? Join us in this video as we look at what Easter truly means and see what the empty tomb has accomplished for you! There is victory for you in the true Easter story! Jesus is alive! The Resurrection “Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. 2 And behold, there…

Hosanna In The Highest

“And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, ‘Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!’” (Matthew 21:9) As we observed Palm Sunday this past weekend, most of us probably heard the story of Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey while people placed palm branches on the road before Him. As Jesus rode in, crowds were shouting out, “Hosanna!” What were they saying? What does Hosanna…

He Makes Us Fishers Of Men

In our last post, we asked an important question. Should we be following our hearts? If God tells us that our hearts are deceitful and desperately sick, should we really be giving them any equity in leading us? We ended that post by saying that Christians should be following Jesus Christ. He is not deceitful or sick. He stands and bids us, “Follow me.” We, then, get to decide if we want to follow our heart’s feelings or our Savior’s leadings. I want to examine…

Should We Follow Our Hearts?

“Follow your heart,” we like to say. That is common advice for us to give someone who is trying to make a tough decision. What we are really saying in that moment is that the person should choose whichever option they feel is best. “Do whatever you feel,” we might as well say. Is this good advice, though? Should we be doing whatever we feel? Should we actually follow our hearts? Will our hearts lead us in the right direction? Let’s examine Scripture to see!…

Are We Too Worried About Our Image?

Do you ever have those moments in church when the Word of God cuts you at a deep level? That is exactly how I felt two Sundays ago. God, lovingly, will use His Word to convict our hearts at times when it is needed. We do not always love those moments, but they are extremely needed. I wonder if what I needed to hear is something that you may need to hear as well. Open your heart and allow God to use His Word in…

The Shortage of Christian Workers

“After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. And he said to them, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.’” (Luke 10:1-2) I believe that we often fail to obey the command of Jesus found at the end of Luke 10:2. He tells us to pray…

What Does The Last Verse Of The Bible Say?

The last verse in the Bible is a profound one. Have you ever thought about that? God has given us His Word, 66 books in all. The Bible is a large book, with life-changing truth on every page, but have you ever considered what God has left us with on the last page? I think the last verse of Scripture is crucial for our walk with the Lord. I believe God was very intentional about it. Let’s chat about that verse. “The grace of the…
